Good answer! However, the word "cocaine" is never actually said in the song, "For Your Life." This is a popular misheard lyric. Check out the official lyrics of the song, and you'll see what he really sings. It's pretty sly.

"For Your Life," does NOT reference Cocaine. The lyrics refer to "Cook it, cook it... try it, fry it... Although it is said to be about a friend of Robert Plant's who was on Cocaine, the song doesn't reference the word.

I`m not only a Zeppelin fanatic, but I have been collecting Zeppelin - including Jimmy Page and Robert Plant solo music & information - for over 27 years. I am truly a lover of Page/Plant music in & out of Zeppelin simply because of the honesty & integrity of it all. - I have been studying them for as long as I have been listening to Rock/Blues Music. Their interpretation of the blues is unlike any other. I look forward to any question and will answer the very best I can - as above all - I am just a fan like you! (Please understand my interest is in the music and people of REAL life; NOT in rumor or fantasy).
